JONESVILLE — This past Thursday as a good day for the Jonesville Middle School Football Team which defeated Blacksburg 34-0.
In a statement release Friday, Wildcat Coach John Voiselle said that the game got off to a good start when Quarterback Jabryson Hunter “got on the board first with an early fifty-five yard touchdown” and gave the Wildcats an early lead of 6-0.
The Wildcats subsequently went on to maintain and increase that lead and prevent Blacksburg from scoring.
Voiselle said that Hunter “later found Wide Receiver Javarius Stewart for a forty yard touchdown pass before the half.” He said that Hunter’s subsequent two-point conversion had the Wildcats up 14-0 at the half.
In the third quarter, Voiselle said Hunter capped a 75-yard drive with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Wide Receiver Branson Cook. He said that Hunter’s 2 point conversion then made it 22-0 in favor of the Wildcats.
Early in the fourth quarter, Voiselle said Running Back Evan Threadgill score on a 3-yard touchdown that finished a 65-yard drive for Jonesville making the score 28-0.
Later in the fourth, Voiselle said Quarterback Ben Black hit Wide Receiver Will Edwards for a 40-yard reception, setting up a 10-yard touchdown run by Runing Back CJ Brannon to make it 34-0.
Voiselle praised the Wildcats defense which was led by DT Jace Anderson, DE Caleb Bright, LB Jabryson Hunter, and CB Jayden Peterson.
“Our defense bent, but didn’t break,” Voiselle said. “Our offense did what we planned to do. Our team is close and getting closer. We’ve got good 8th grade leaders, good attitudes, and young guys who are all in. We all feel really good about this team. We’ll take it one game at a time. On to Campobello.”
Jonesville is 2-1 for the season. The Wildcats will travel to Campobello on Thursday for a 5 p.m. game.
